Immortal Bird, Crusader, Gnarhval 

When: Sat., Dec. 7, 9 p.m. 2013
Price: $5
New Brunswick blackened folk-metal band Thrawsunblat rose from the ashes of Woods of Ypres, whose run ended after the 2011 death of front man David Gold in a car accident; Thrawsunblat’s drummer, and the final drummer in Woods of Ypres, is Chicagoan Rae Amitay, who also plays in Mares of Thrace. In between Thrawsunblat tours in support of their terrific second album, Wanderer on the Continent of Saplings, Amitay found time to start her own group, Immortal Bird, and create the EP Akrasia. Originally intended to be a studio-only project, it’s now a full-fledged live band (with Novembers Doom drummer Garry Naples freeing up Amitay to be a full-time front woman), and Akrasia is sick and greasy black metal that does an admirable job inventing the sound of a mind tearing itself apart. —Monica Kendrick Crusader and Gnarhval open.
